Artist StatementI feel most alive when I paint. All of my senses respond and I feel pulled into something larger—I get lost in the moment. Painting becomes a meditation practice for me.
I have studied and worked with art all my life. Starting with private lessons as child, onto Maryland
Institute College of Art in Baltimore where I graduated magna cum laude, and then into the art work world.
I’ve worked as a silk-screener of t-shirts and posters, illustrator for a medical school and private
hospital, art teacher and art camp director, and designer of print publications and outdoor exhibits.
Over the past few years I have devoted more time to my own art and less to graphic design. I’ve
returned to oil painting, particularly plein air, figure sketching and using my photographs in collages to created dramatic and unique images.
